This volume aimed to highlight narrative identities of European cities or city neighbourhoods that have been overlooked, such as mid-sized cities. These cities are neither small towns nor metropolises, cities that are now unveiling their appeal or specificity. The present special issue thus covers a range of representations of cities. The articles investigate more systematically how different texts deal with various cities from different experiential and fictional perspectives. The issue covers the geographical scope across Europe, from east to west or vice versa, as well as a range of different works of national literature(s), but with a clear emphasis on mid-sized European cities that have until now been deemed as lesser-known, secondary, peripheral, ‘other’ cities that are in the focus of the research of the COST project Writing Urban Places. New Narratives of the European City, within which this journal issue is being published.

This issue aims at developing an extensive understanding of counter-hegemonic implementations where South-wide understandings are articulated through literary works about the Global South, considering the decolonial possibilities as a methodology that considers the epistemic variety in environmental studies. In doing so, this issue incorporates literary investigation into environmental issues with the objective of contributing to more equitable and sustainable development through a greater awareness of nature-society correlations. The issue aims to reevaluate the paradigms of ecological modernization, ecological democracy, political ecology, and decolonial and postcolonial approaches to ecological issues, considering it an epistemological project that calls for the fostering of a distinct approach in the assessment of nature-society relations.

Special Issue on Pre-Service Teacher Education
Issue Editor: Hilal Peker, PhD
The TESOL community lost a great scholar, Dr. Alex P. Davies, on October 22, 2020. He was a dedicated and influential academic who inspired a lot of scholars and students all around the world. Dr. Davies’ research primarily focused on pre-service teacher education and bilingual education. To honor his work and commitment to pre-service teacher education, we have dedicated this special issue to him.
Teacher preparation is the keystone to training and producing highly qualified teachers. Teacher education programs have the responsibility to keep up with current trends in PreK-12 curricula and pedagogical approaches as well as local and national legislation. As our world is ever-evolving, so too are the students and their families and communities from which our schools serve. In preparing pre-service teachers to meet the growing demands of our increasingly diverse student populations, teacher education programs must now consider students’ linguistic acquisition and development as they relate to both language learning (e.g., bilingual, ESOL, foreign language instruction) and content-area instruction. Within this scope and in the memory of our dear colleague, Alex, this special issue contains articles on Pre-Service Teacher Education, and teacher preparation and training. We will always remember you, Alex. May you rest in peace!
